Stilts Required
This dress in cream is absolutely stunning, and so versatile. Lovely heavy material, fits beautifully around the bust (although you probably couldn't be much bigger through the bust than a small D cup without needing a bit of additional support, or at least double-sided tape). Two points to consider though. Firstly, the sizing is quite large. I bought the S as I would normally wear 4 - 6, and it's definitely much closer to a 6. Secondly, as has been mentioned in a few reviews already, the dress is incredibly long. I'm 5'7, and even with 5" platformed wedges, the dress is still at least 2 inches too long. A quick trip to the tailors, stack on the bangles and voila! The ultimate Summer staple from beach to bar.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

I may never wear skinnies again...
I purchased these more out of curiosity than anything else (it's been a very, very long time since I've worn anything other than skinnies). I'll definitely be bringing these into regular rotation, not least of all because they magically make you a foot taller, a stone lighter, impossibly elegant, AND a certified gym bunny (if some very flattering comments on how perky my bum looks are anything to go by). Fit like a glove with not a hint of muffin top (size 29, might need to be taken up an inch or two but that's just me and jeans), gorgeous light stretch denim with just enough distressing that they're still perfectly Casual Friday appropriate. Looks amazing with a loose tee or blouse, a blazer and your highest heels.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Absolutely adorable
So glad I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered a size up as these do run small. My feet are a size 8.5-9 and quite narrow, so I ordered the 9 and they fit like a glove. The shape is adorable, really dainty and feminine looking. The suede used is lovely and soft without being too thin or flimsy, and very comfortable even on first wear (helped out by the cushiony leather instep). Beautifully finished, stitching is excellent, definitely worth the price-tag. Add a great little menswear touch to your skinny jeans and shirt combo, without being as literal or heavy as leather brogues. All-in-all a fantastic buy, will definitely be investing in other colours before they sell out.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected
